Looks at the diffstat.

If I want to grep for PCI_VENDOR_ID_APPLE I find the ids in the old code.
I won't find them in your new code.

If you care strongly about using the same macro please send a patch to
remove it in nvme.  I certainly don't want the sane version switched
over to it.

I'm just saying the current atch is not by luck.  As said in the previous

is a good idea.  I just disagree with the "works by luck" statement for
the current entries.
